Rare Footage: Huge Muskie Snags a Northern Pike [VIDEO]

A muskie t-bones and dwarfs a northern pike.

Muskies are the mature whitetail bucks of the water. They are elusive and attract a lot of attention.

Watch this rare footage of a huge muskie feasting on a nicely-sized northern pike.

 

The videographer claims the muskie was over 50 inches in length.  It was latched onto the pike for more than five minutes before letting go. Muskies feed for a very short period of time each day, so the guy behind the camera was lucky to capture the video.

The northern pike was eventually released with multiple wounds.

The best part of fishing is you never know what might happen!
